15. a5 was a mistake; 15...Ndf6
Winning was something else as Georgiev found lots of inventive ideas which could have tripped Psakhis up.

May-17-17  ChessHigherCat: What a mystifying game. They need a new kind of notation to indicate the number of times you scratch your head or the number of cm your jaw drops! 26. Qf8 was particularly surprising. I guess if 26. Qc1 or d2 then e3 wins the exchange and if 26.Qh4 then Nf5 forces 27. Rxf5, winning the exchange again. You can tell that Giorgev really respects Psakhis' judgement because he doesn't accept a single one of the nine zillion sacrifices offered.
